“Brown has written a lively tale that is sure to engage young readers.” ―The New York Times
“While the end to Roz's benign and wildlife is startling and violent, Brown leaves Roz and her companions--and readers--with hope. Thought-provoking and charming.”―Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
“Brown's middle-grade debut, an uplifting story about an unexpected visitor whose arrival disrupts the animal inhabitants of a rocky island, has a contemporary twist...Brown wisely eschews a happy ending in favor of an open-ended one that supports the tone of a story that's simultaneously unsentimental and saturated with feeling.”―Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
